I remember

I remember

I remember nostalgia
I remember cordial summers
I remember docile winters
I remember festive monsoons
I remember inviting meadows
I remember majestic mountains
I remember snow masking sorrows
I remember the sun painting its masterpiece
I remember the sweet breath of nature
I remember its ominous presence
I remember love in every fruit
I remember passion in every bird’s poetry
I remember mystery in the prayer flags
I remember relief in the hot soup
I remember perfection in the water
I remember magic in the poison ivy
I remember clarity in the waterfall
I remember home in the midst of nature
I remember brilliance in the past
I remember nostalgia
